The worldwide leader in animal photography, National Geographic brings us Mother's Love: Inspiring True Stories From the Animal Kingdom, a collection of the most moving and intimate portraits of animal mothers and their babies. Each photograph shows animal moms as they nurture, play, teach, and protect their young. Sprinkled throughout are inspirational quotes ("All I am I owe to my angel mother." —Abraham Lincoln) and unbelievable true stories of maternal heroism, like the mother duck from Vancouver who persuaded a human passerby to rescue her ducklings from a storm drain. Page after page will touch your heart and remind us all of the valuable roles that mothers play—both in the wild and at home. A perfect gift for any budget, Mother's Love is a great way to celebrate Mother's Day, a new arrival, or any old day to show your mom how much you care.

Our set of mother-of-pearl bangles offers six pastel hues to mix and match or wear as part of an armful. Shell inlaid in brass.

                  In December 1985, Dr. Dian Fossey's body was discovered at Karisoke, the research station she had established high in the Virunga mountains of Africa, and where she dedicated 18 years of her life to the study and preservation of the endangered mountain gorilla. In that time Dian had struggled against ill health, opposition from the authorities, poachers, personal tragedy, and the isolation of Karisoke's remote location. Her strength of will, outspoken nature, and all-consuming passion for the gorillas earned her renown and respect and helped bring the plight of these magnificent creatures and her groundbreaking observations on their behavior to the world's attention.

At nearly twice the age most wolves reach, Black Wolf's unorthodox lifestyle likely means he has more pups than any wolf in Yellowstone.

                  Selenite is a crystalline variety of gypsum, named after the Greek word for moon because of the belief that its transparency waxed and waned. Some believe that it clears the air of electrical pollution. Artisans in a village near Agadir, Morocco, on the Atlantic coast, carve locally mined selenite into this luminous, translucent votive holder. Please accept small variations in this natural material.

                  This graceful cameo is hand-carved in the southern Italian town of Torre del Greco, at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, using the pink and ivory of the conch shell. The artist delicately carves away the outer layer of the shell to shape a young woman’s profile. Cameos became popular souvenirs for English tourists visiting the newly rediscovered ruins of Pompeii during the Elizabethan era. Sterling silver. Signed by the artist.

                  For hundreds of years, women in the rural villages of the Aran Islands off the western coast of Ireland have knit natural wool sweaters for their fisherman kin. Although the myth that you can identify island families by the stiches in their sweater—like a Scottish tartan—isn't true, every knitter does have her own special patterns, passed down through generations of mothers and grandmothers. At weekly gatherings, they continually invented intricate new stitches.
